What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #246

It was back to the kitchen table for me this week.

P1030389

My usual Tuesday afternoon pastime of kitting, ready for class today. Kraft cardstock, doilies and twine, with a bit of peach thrown in for good measure. We’ll be using my current favourite wood grain background and some banners to make a card like this one and a couple of other projects.

P1030381

The gift bag can just be seen in the middle at the top and we finish with a quickie card like the flower one in my last post. It’s fun to make cards using lots of different techniques and products, but I also like to show that simple can be effective too. Especially if you are new to this hobby and don’t have many supplies of you own.

That’s it from me. I have boxes to pack and a car to load. See you later, somewhere among the desks.

Oh that is so sweet! Pretty as a card, but a bit bigger and framed? I can see a row, all in pretty beach-hut colours, all on a wall..... :)

How pretty your card looks, and like others I am loving the background. You don't really need lots of products to make a nice card, Less is so often more. You have created such a pretty card.

Oh I really like the pink with the wood. Well done.

alexa said...

Mega pretty - there is something about the contrast of the wood and the lace which is really effective. Very prettily put together. I could do with coming to one of your classes :).
